I ordered a Mr bean animated picture cake for my son's birthday. It was so amazing with a great taste and lovely decor. My boy really loved it! Thank you cake bar for adding smiles on our boys day, you're the best!

I ordered a cake online for a Birthday and they went the extra mile to deliver. Clear communication, friendly service and very tasty cake. I can't wait to visit the store in person.

Excellent cakes and reasonably priced. The coffees and hot chocolate too is good. Nice simple place to meet friends in the day time for a chin wag.

Maybe this place is OK in person, i doubt it, but certainly do not order from Cake Bar on Afridelivery. Ordered a garden salad, coffee bbq chicken sandwhich, and molten cake for delivery to my hotel. The salad was soaked in mayonnaise dressing....the sandwhich was...cold and greasy with greasy cold onion rings on top. the molten cake had been thrown in a tin, put into some sort of oven or microwave and cooked till it was a leaden disc of something that had once been chocolate. i think it was so solidly cooked onto the tin, i just three the whole thing in the garbage. There were the remnants of some white liquid that i suppose was ice cream in the bottom of the plastic delivery bag... luckily had been soaked up by the napkins that they sent along. The entire meal was thoroughly disgusting...a real disappointment from something that i thought sounded good....the photos on the site seemed interesting. Unfortunately they just aren't taking their food or their delivery seriously. Never again...there are too may other options. this was 200 kwatcha down the toilet.More

Hello Todd Sincere apologies for the terrible experience you had yesterday. It is obviously disappointing to hear that you would rate us 0 if you could :( I can imagine how upset you were, more espcially after waiting for the food. We can assure you...More

We live in another part of Lusaka but don't mind going across town for a meal at The Cake Bar. We love their fresh and well-prepared salads, wraps, and burgers. Recently we placed a large order for quiche pies to a function, which worked out...splendidly. My only gripe is staff could improve timing for beverages. If I ask to have my coffee, milkshake or whatever served with my meal, I don't expect to get it some time later when I'm almost done with the food. Just a detail, but this can be worked on. See you next time!More

Whenever i come here the food is consistent and delicious, however they always refuse to honor the smart saver deal for their burgers and I end up having to fight with management. If they have coupon deal in writing they should honor it and not...give excuses that their system has changed.More

Hello. Sorry about this - Both the coupon deal misunderstanding and the response 1 year late :/ Hope we have somehow made up for it by now. If not, do get in touch, and we can give another coupon - one that is actually valid...More

I have been here plenty times and must say the service and food and coffee are always excellent. This little gem in Makeni is my favourite place to meet up with friends or for business. Their menu is comprehensive and very affordable. Keep it up.
